  • Assessment of Post-Dilatation Strategies for Optimal Stent Expansion in Calcified Coronary Lesions: Ex Vivo Analysis With Optical Coherence Tomography



    Interventional cardiologists make adjustments in the presence of coronary calcifications known to limit stent expansion, but proper balloon sizing, plaque-modification approaches, and high-pressure regimens are not well established. Intravascular optical coherence tomography (IVOCT) provides high-resolution images of coronary tissues, including detailed imaging of calcifications, and accurate measurements of stent deployment, providing a means for detailed study of stent deployment.
